Policy Setters

The Clark County School District Trustees do not understand that they are not operators – they are policy setters.  Every time they listen to a child’s parent complain about homework, class size, etc. and they respond to that by interfering with the day-to-day activities of the superintendent, they totally undermine the ability of the superintendent to be the chief executive officer of the system.  No superintendent will ever be effective as long as this board functions as it does.

  1. You are right Jim! In the Army the General does not usually give direct orders to privates. They have something called the chain of command and it works.
